Here at Gillian & Co., we understand that your home is important to you, and that you naturally want to make it look its best. If you have a vision for your space and want to bring it to life, one of the most effective ways to do that is to work with a professional interior designer. Our team has extensive experience in this field, and in this article, we’ll draw on that experience to tell you about a few key qualities to look for in an interior designer in order to make sure that you are in good hands.
- Although good interior designers are able to work with a variety of clients to bring many different creative visions to life, some of their own style and design preferences will still come through. If you have a particular style you want to create, it’s a good idea to hire a designer who has worked in that style many times.
- Product Access. One of the many benefits of working with an interior designer is enjoying access to a greater variety of pieces and higher-quality materials to use in your home. Because of this, we encourage you to make sure that a designer has the kind of industry access and knowledge necessary to secure the best materials and furnishings for your space.
- Lastly, we encourage you to check out an interior designer’s reputation and record of client satisfaction before you commit to hiring them. You can do this by checking online reviews, but you can also ask for a list of client references and contact past clients directly to find out about their experience working with this designer.
